BIG PORTIONS so come hungry!

Where in the world is a small cone a pint of ice cream..........at Jaxson's of course! I am a BIG guy and I can only finish a medium cone. The food is American fare and it is good. The candy shop at the front of the store brings you back to your childhood. No place else in the area has... read more

OMG I am a ice cream lover, but this place is the bomb diggity. We had the junior sampler. Yes two of us ate the WHOLE thing. The hot fudge and carmel sauce were so rich and thick, they were amazing. The decor is fun. You could spend hours just looking at all the memorabillia. We did have to wait... More

My family and I have been coming here for over 28 years!! They never fail to impress and have kept the same friendly service since the first time we ate here. The food is just as good as the ice cream! Anything you get on the menu is great (flavors, freshness, variety are all good). The ice cream, of course,... More

If you go on a weekend evening be prepare for the long line, but it is worth it. Once you are in, be prepared to endulge yourself! Delicious ice cream, many to chose from and so many toppings. I can only rate their ice cream because that is all I always order.

This review is about the ice cream. I have been going here for over 25 years. Whenever relatives come to town, this is the first place they want to go. My favorite is the Cherry Vanilla, whole cherry's cut in half are layered throughout. Anything with the chocolate chip is a winner as well.

Knew wasn't going to eat there when saw the line... so settled for ice cream. Like most hand dipped more expensive than soft but was there for the experience so didn't matter. Wife and I split half pound of praline pecan. Have had this combo before but never the taste. Filled with both P&P's. Saw a banana split that would... More

Whenever we visit the Ft. Lauderdale area we never fail to visit Jaxson's. Learned a long time ago, you don't go in here after a big meal. Companions had the pulled pork sandwich, turkey sandwich, and my significant other and I split (to save room for ice cream) the Italian wrap in a tomato basil wrap. All sandwiches where excellent....

There's probably not much I have to add to the other reviews. This is a really fun place to go with lots of character. My husband used to come here as a little boy and insisted we go there when we were in the area. The portions are huge, and as I was debating how I could manage both lunch... More

This is an authentic, fun ice cream parlor. The decor is interesting with the old photos, signs and license plates from yesteryear. They also have excellent food if you're hungry enough before gorging yourself on a wonderful dessert. Come hungry or you will not finish what you've ordered. The portions are massive! They must have at least 50 flavors of... More
